SPJ is the leading organization for journalists in both print and electronic media. VCU has one of nation’s top student chapters of SPJ. The faculty adviser is Bonnie Davis.
VCU’s SPJ chapter meets once a month – at 5 p.m. on a Thursday to be determined – in Temple 1145. SPJ holds programs on such topics as Freedom of Information, diversity, Project Watchdog and other journalistic concerns.
This is the honor society for journalism and mass communications. According to the organization’s website, “Membership must be earned by excellence in academic work at one of the colleges and universities that have chapters. Selection for membership is a mark of highest distinction and honor.”
Membership is by invitation only. The faculty adviser, Dr. Judy Turk, contacts students as they become eligible. The school established its chapter in 1978.
